[Samba] Migration to vfs_fruit with existing AppleDouble files?

I have a quite large installation that currently supports OSX clients by
forcing them to SMB1 with no streams (via the "nsmb.conf") file.
This setup forces the OSX clients to generate their own ._[FILENAME]
appledouble files for files with resource forks (like adobe documents).
We recently discovered the fine work that's been done on vfs_fruit and
wanted to see it it could help us.
We have setup a test bed with a newer version of samba and vfs_fruit
implemented and the behavior seems much better (faster, easier, etc) we
just have one issue we've found.
The OSX generated AppleDouble files are not compatible with the vfs_fruit
I think the difference (or at least part of it) is the files made by OSX
might have all streams in them not just the AFP_* streams and the files
themselves don't have xattr's set.
Ideally we would like to upgrade our existing server to a newer version
using vfs_fruit and letting the VFS handle the AppleDouble files.
Is there a way to support this?
